John J. Seubert of Manlius, died unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, July 27, 2019. John was born in Syracuse, NY, the son of David Anselm and Lena Sweeney Seubert on November 6, 1943. John was a graduate of Camden High School Class of 1961 and received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Utica College and Syracuse University respectively. John taught business education at Camden High School and was a Guidance Counselor for many years in the Cicero-North Syracuse District, retiring in 1998.
John was a car aficionado. He had fervent knowledge of automobiles and was readily able to identify the manufacturer, model and year of production of any car ever found on the highway. He was also a model train enthusiast and enjoyed his train collection through his retirement. John also had a keen interest in the stock market and loved giving as well as receiving trading tips.
John’s love of animals attests to his warm, kind and gentle persona. His pets were the epicenter of his life and home. He frequently adopted homeless pets and welcomed animals into his home after their owners had died. He had the unique ability to identify and engage people and animals that had become marginalized. He approached everyone he met with acceptance and readily identified their uniqueness and personal attributes.
John was a communicant of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Syracuse.
